Memories last a life time and so we look back on images and video taken well before the pandemic of a small shopping area that many people enjoyed.

Whilst the square has a new name now and lots of changes are taking place to make it even better, its nice to look back.

The shop keepers who have been and gone, Raj at the clothes shop will be best remembered in the square, all the events that happened will never be forgotten, and just sitting down watching the world go by for some was an important part of their life.

The idea of a man selling veg in the middle of the square was a good one and lots of people got many bargains from the seller.

Many friends have been made in the square, and relationships! it was a great place to hang out more so during the summer months.

We hope you enjoy the pictures and video and hopefully will have brought back some fond memories of what was then normal times, oh and that awful countdown to the Christmas lights switch on.
